In 2012 Nicolas and Philippe, childhood friends, purchased the Hauts-Baigneux vineyards in Azay-le-Rideau, just east of the much more renown Chinon. Inspired by stories from some older locals of how fine the Chenin was here before the second world war, due to its mixture of soils, particularly the wealth of flint. At the time of purchasing the vines the region was most famous for Gamay and Grolleau based wines but is now increasingly recognized as producing some of the most exciting wines in the Touraine.

The cuvee is the third vintage from these young Sauvignon vines. Planted as an experiment, which may sound strange in the Loire Valley, on soil with intense silex content in the bedrock where you would usually find Chenin. This is not a Sauvignon that mirrors the more famed names of Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé - it's a denser, more lees driven style, very complex and deep.
